Orthopedic massage is a style of massage therapy focused on treating painful conditions that affect the soft tissues of the body. Because orthopedic massage is designed to treat medical conditions, it requires extensive training. It involves releasing tense muscles, helping to stretch and lengthen tight muscles and tendons, and decompress rigid joints. My goal is to restore full health to the soft tissues of your body, both treating your specific conditions as well as improving your overall well-being. Price is discounted $32 when purchased as a package of 3. Total price comes out to be $256 or $84 per treatment compared to $96 per treatment if purchased separately.
Evaluation is included.

Orthopedic massage is a style of massage therapy focused on treating painful conditions that affect the soft tissues and muscles surrounding the joints of the body. Because orthopedic massage is designed to treat medical conditions, it requires extensive training. It involves releasing tense muscles, helping to stretch and lengthen tight muscles and tendons, and decompress rigid joints thus working to restore balance to these physical structures. My goal is to restore full health to the soft tissues of your body, both treating your specific conditions as well as improving your overall well-being.
Soft tissue pain is usually what brings people in to see me, whether it is from an acute injury, or strain from overuse due to a repetitive motion such as tennis, golf, hockey or jogging. This pain is frequently caused by a surgery, whatever the cause may be, the intent is to permit better range of motion of the affected joints.
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.
Session includes body tempering techniques as well as some stretching, actively and passively to help release tight muscles.
Sports Massage is a type of massage designed for highly active people who engage in athletics. Engaging in sports is harsh on the body and can often lead to injuries in both the short and long term. Sports Massage enhances performance and prolongs a sports career by helping to prevent injury, reduce pains and swelling in the body, relax the mind, increase flexibility, and dramatically improve recovery rates. Sports Massage is also highly effective in aiding the rapid recovery of an athlete from an injury by encouraging greater kinesthetic awareness and in turn promoting the body's natural immune function.
Sports Massage sometimes may include myofascial release which is a form of soft tissue therapy intended to eliminate pain, increase range of motion, and rebalance the entire body. It does this by using massage techniques to stretch the fascia and release the bonds that exist between the fascia, muscles and bones. Fascia is the connective tissue that connects and covers all muscles, organs, and skeletal structures of the body. Direct myofascial release is sometimes known as deep tissue work. Indirect release applies light pressure and gently stretches the fascia; this allows for increased blood circulation and relief from pain.
I use Muscle Energy Techniques (MET) such as:
Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF), which is a physiotherapy modality that seeks to enhance neuromuscular function by activating proprioceptors through facilitation, inhibition, strengthening, and relaxation of selected muscle groups.
Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) which was developed by Aaron Mattes and is a dynamic system for improving your flexibility and overall well-being. As you probably already know, stretching your muscles not only reduces your chance of injury, but also strengthens your tendons and improves your circulation.
Reciprocal Inhibition is where one muscle contracts and its opposite relaxes to allow ease of movement and reduce the risk of muscle tears. but also allows the release of the target muscle that is tight by activating the opposite muscle.
Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) is an efficient and effective manual therapy technique developed by Ann and Chris Frederick. it is a therapist assisted mobility, stretching and flexibility manual therapy method and Fascial Stretch is also a neuromyofascial manual therapy method which focuses on the connective tissue system rather than isolated muscle treatment.
Corrective exercise is different than what a massage therapist or a physical therapist can offer. Think of it as injury prevention. And, with being said,
Explain the steps to restore structural alignment and stability from head to toe
Describe the corrective exercises that correspond with the most common movement dysfunctions
Describe soft tissue assessments and correctives for the most common joint restrictions
If you look at society today, we are all more sedentary than ever before, with much of our time spent staring at a computer or smartphone. As daily habits, these things cause us to have poor posture. That includes our shoulders rounding forward, heads jutting forward, and spines rounding. Not to mention the tightening of the hip flexors from sitting for 6, 8, or even more hours daily.
Please note that a corrective exercise is not a medical profession. This means that it cannot treat nor diagnose a medical condition.
The modality uses a custom-tailored approach to improving your body awareness and movement skills. Combining problem-solving, guided-discovery, and exploratory methods, this practice inevitably leads to a stronger connection between the mind and body, creating a more natural and graceful experience of movement and interaction with other people.
A Movement education session can be a stand alone service or it may be included in a regular visit care plan. For those who want to be more familiar with their movement so that muscle imbalances are not created, work related injuries are decreased and where better habits are formed to reduce pain as well as have a better understanding of joint mobility, this may fit you well.
This is a deeply immersive experience that utilizes a unique form of breathing that is designed to simulate a trauma response in the system in a safe space and very safe way. We use it, generally, for somatic, cathartic release of suppressed and repressed emotional wounds and trauma, and more specifically when there are things you may need to work on individually: specific emotions and experiences.
We all carry memories, experiences, and pain in our bodies. Some may not even belong to us, but have been inherited genetically going back 7 to 14+ generations. Although it may not be our fault, it's nonetheless our responsibility to liberate ourselves, our minds, and our bodies from it all.
It requires a tremendous amount of energy and resources from the body to perpetually keep things locked up inside. Releasing trapped emotion releases that energy and allows it to be utilized instead for maintaining and supporting immune functions and overall physical health, in generating new cells, recycling old ones, addressing inflammation in the body, and supporting repair and recovery.
Benefits include alleviating: addiction issues, chronic stress, PTSD, depression, anxiety, chronic pain, grief and loss, childhood trauma, suppressed/repressed emotions, relationship struggles, money blocks, self worth/self love issues, patterns of self sabotage, fears and phobias, limiting beliefs, and much more.
Clients often walk away feeling emotionally lighter, with a release of physical tension and psychosomatic symptoms, a sense of freedom, with insights, inspiration, and with healing that some describe as years of therapy wrapped up into a single session of deep, cathartic, somatic breathwork.
With Nutrition and Health Coaching at Truly Heal Wellness we create a supportive process to set priorities, establish goals, provide guidance and accountability, and create individualized action plans which acknowledge and foster self-care. We fully recognize that every single body is different and requires different forms of nutrition that support the person, their health, and overall goals.
Everyone is in a different place and stage of their journey and requires different approaches and modifications. We work to meet you where you're at, and implement a plan that works around you as an individual.
In addition to reviewing your current nutritional intake, medical history and current medications and supplements, we're going to assess your lifestyle to get a sense of your current levels of stress, sleep patterns, and levels of physical activity, and offer support in all of those areas.
Although we are working with nutritional goals, we acknowledge that we can't ever isolate any one thing in the body, and for this reason, we'll be utilizing an approach that incorporates tools and modalities that will really nourish and support every part of you, mentally, emotionally, and physically.
Stress and anxiety, alongside chronic physical, mental, and emotional disorders have become all too common in our society.
PTSD, addiction, self sabotage, eating disorders, chronic inflammation and pain in the body, tightness and tension, migraine headaches, a lack of drive and motivation, inability to focus and pay attention, cardiovascular issues, systemic endocrine imbalances, insomnia, and a host of other health complications are very often products of a dysregulated nervous system, trauma, emotional suppression, and an inability to meet with daily life circumstances that seem to overwhelm our system.
Recognizing that the health of our body is directly and intimately linked with the health and state of our minds and the life circumstances we're experiencing in our partnerships, families, and jobs and careers, we work with you to develop tools and practices to help you better self regulate on a day to day, to build flexibility and resilience in your nervous system to allow you to better meet and adapt to inevitable stresses that life presents, to learn to fully move through all emotional states, including those less desirable ones like anger, grief, and sorrow, and to really allow more joy and peace to enter your life and allowing those to become your more natural default state of being.
In addition to addressing stress management, nervous system regulation and emotional regulation, we'll also support you in making transitions and changes in your life that most support your overall health and state of being along with goals you've set for yourself.
This is a partnership where our primary focus is you, and supporting you in creating the life that fully aligns with who you are, what you want to do, what you wish to create, and who you wish to be surrounded by.
Life Coaching at Truly Heal Wellness is about addressing every area and dimension of your life, from health, to work, to family, to greater vision, mission and purpose, and ensuring that you have all the tools you need to live it to the fullest and meet whatever comes your way with grace and ease.
This is the ultimate opportunity to fully shift and transform things with your health and in your life. We'll be using guided breathwork sessions like those described above to facilitate the release of trapped emotions in the body, along with the memories, experiences, blocks, pain, and compensatory patterns of behavior you developed in response to them that often led to poor health outcomes, self sabotage, chronic stress, anxiety and depression, issues with family, relationships, and jobs and careers.
In addition to freeing the mind and body from stored emotions and trauma, thus creating an environment that facilitates healing and one that allows for recovery and the generation of new cells and overall lowered inflammation, we'll be making sure you receive ongoing support with the various specific circumstances and issues you may be working through individually, while fully supporting the health of the mind, the brain and nervous system, and body as a whole with all the tools, knowledge and methods offered in our coaching programs.
Emotional freedom. Peace. Joy. Deep healing and deep transformation. This is our commitment to you.
Chair massage is a popular way of relieving stress and releasing tension right in your home or workplace. You receive your massage in a specialized ergonomic chair which I bring to your location.
In addition to the usual health benefits of massage, another benefit of chair massage is that it is done over the clothing. With seated massage, you can avoid the discomfort and awkwardness that you may feel in disrobing for a traditional massage. Also, chair massage sessions are usually shorter than traditional massage, making it convenient enough to fit into your busy schedule.
Chair massage is a perfect modality for a corporate wellness program and has been shown to decreases workplace stress and injuries thus not effecting your companies bottom line.
